It’s been about six months since I moved from Tainan, Taiwan to my new home here in Portugal. I’m finding the move to be a bit of a trip. The change in pace, culture, language, friends, family and the obvious restart to my art practice has been a humbling experience. But, before I jump into the european life, I just wanted to give a little send off to my time in Taiwan. If you haven’t been there, I’d highly recommend it. For me it was magic everyday.
Last days in Tainan
The possibility of stumbling upon a Daoist ceremony is very high.
Daily life is an artistic assemblage
Public sculpture reflects a different time
The fashion is practical for the climate
Banyan Trees take over when they can
And Pole-dancers on Jeeps send off dead men.
Thank you Tainan.
